The Late Richard Reed

Early Friday morning, after a serious and painful illness, Mr. Richard Reed of Head street, passed away.

Some time ago, in an effort to obtain relief from his trouble, Mr. Reed suffered an operation in Brantford hospital. The improvement was not permanent.

He was a native of England and was, previous to coming to Canada, living at Eghann, Surrey, where he was postmaster.

The family came to Simcoe a number of years ago. Mr. Reed was an unassuming man, but had made many warm friends since coming here.

He is survived by a widow and three children -- Charles Reed of Detroit, John Reed of the G. W. Lea store, and Mrs. William Larier of England.

The funeral took place at 2 p.m. Monday from his late residence, Head Street, to Trinity Church, where is the absence of Rev. A. B. Farrey through illness, Rev. H. J. Johnston of Port Dover, officiated.

Several members of the local Masonic Lodge attended, Mr. Reed having long been a member of their order in England.

The pallbearers were Messrs. Payley, Skinner, Sims, Russell and Green of Simcoe and Newlands of Charlotteville. Interment was made in Oakwood.
